The rising number of cold storage facilities and supermarkets to increasing health consciousness amongst consumers

The rapidly expanding cold storage infrastructure has been contributing significantly to the growth of the ice-cream industry worldwide. The cold storage facilities help prevent the spoilage of eatables during storage and transportation. The advent of mobile refrigeration systems and active refrigerated transport systems has played a crucial role in the storage and transport of ice-cream products. Mobile refrigeration systems are used in transporting perishable foodstuffs such as ice-cream from the manufacturing site to refrigerated warehouses. The refrigerated warehouses store these products, along with other perishable products, in low-temperature conditions. The expansion of cold chain systems is expected to be a major factor in driving the ice-cream market during the forecast period. UAE heavily relies on food imports and hence, has developed a vast network of cold chains and cold storage facilities. Sprawling cold chains and cold warehouses to store perishable foods such as ice cream has underpinned the growth of the ice cream market. The proliferation of convenience stores and retail malls selling ice-cream products is another factor driving the ice-cream market in UAE.
